The Anglian Region of the National Rivers Authority (NRA) proposes to engage Consultants by competitive tender to carry out a comprehensive survey of the condition and effectiveness of all fluvial hydrometric installations currently operated by the NRA within the Anglian region. The Anglian Region of the NRA operates a large number of river and streamflow gauging stations and water level monitoring stations ("gauging stations") throughout the region. Some of these gauging stations have been installed by the NRA since 1989 but most were installed by its predecessor bodies, namely: a) the Lincolnshire, Welland an Nene, Great Ouse, Norfolk an East Suffolk and Essex River Authorities prior to 1974 (River Boards prior to 1964); b) the five eponymous River Divisions of the Anglian Water Authority between 1974 and 1983; c) the five multi-functional Divisions of the AW A between 1983 and 1989. The layout, design, construction, condition and performance of the NRAs gauging stations therefore varies widely across the region. It'is intended to carry out a Regional Hydrometric Asset Survey of all the NRAs existing gauging stations within the Anglian Region and to appoint Consultants for this purpose. This survey will include hydrometric gauging structures and all associated buildings, plant, services and equipment at each location, but exclude hydrometric instrumentation and telemetry.The survey will assess and record the structural condition and state of maintenance of all structures and buildings, and the hydrometric range and hydraulic efficiency of the gauging structure or structures, at each location. Some locations may have multiple gauging station installations.
